I make no excuse for the headline. I am sure that the vast majority of readers will agree with me, that to pay $210,000 for a box for your fishing tackle is just preposterous. (If you want to order one, it is called the Fly Fishing by Mulliner.)
If that little splurge isn’t enough, how about a Breitling mechanical dash clock that sets back your average Kamnan a cool $300,000. Throw in the $55,055 Linley hamper by Mulliner and you are sure to upstage the local constabulary.
All these are extras that you can order with your Bentley Bentayga, which will set you back over 20 million baht I would guess.
Bentley claim this vehicle is an SUV, complete with 22 inch alloy wheels, a huge step up from the 21 inch wheels fitted to the standard cooking model Bentley. Two-tone paintwork is also available at an extra cost, naturally.
The special body has a Mulliner bottle cooler that features an illuminated chilling cabinet and bespoke Cumbria Crystal flutes.
A premium walnut veneer has been extensively used throughout the cabin. And to prove that money can buy you happiness, there are six mood lighting settings to help sooth, which compromise different light colors, illuminated Mulliner kick plates and Bentley welcome lamps.
The Bentayga is still powered by the (VW) 6.0 liter W12 turbocharged petrol unit that produces 447 kW and 900 Nm of torque and paired to an eight-speed auto with all-wheel drive.
If you are a music fan, the Bentayga has a sound system featuring 20 speakers powered by a 1950 watt, 21 channel amplifier. That should be enough to blow the doors off at full-woofer.
A remote controlled parking heater allows the car to be heated or cooled when the engine is switched off. However, rear window blinds and a double sun visor are extra (just put it on the bill).
The Bentley Mulliner also comes with the car maker’s anti-roll technology that helps by counteracting lateral rolling while cornering to offer a more stable and peaceful ride for the passengers.
Bentley had a one-off Bentley Bentayga Mulliner on display at the 2017 Geneva motor show in March, but I doubt if they will have it transported across for us to go ooh-ahh over the fishing tackle box. I wonder if the fish are in on this as well.
About all that is missing are the solid gold-plated nasal hair clippers. The letter W and Anchor come to mind.
